Actin mRNA sizes and alpha-beta %identity

What are the sizes of mouse alpha and beta actin mRNAs?
Are there multiple mRNAs for each?
Is alpha-actin expressed significantly in liver?
Are alpha and beta actin mRNAs similar enough for an alpha probe to give
significant signal on liver?
Does anyone have the answers to these questions handy or could someone
direct me to (a) review(s) that answer these questions concisely?
After several hours of perusing the literature and comparing the partial
sequences in the databases I have the impression that there are at least
two different mouse alphas that share about 85% nucleotide identity.
